Sponsor Shares Passion Barritt, Tesch Win Cup

Article excerpt

IT MAY have been a hot day but the golf scores were sizzling on the course in the finals of the DGZ sponsored Burnett Cup for 2015.

Winners Ken Barritt, the beef hacker, and beef farmer Graham Tesch, started their round in what looked like a runaway with four up after the first four holes over the professional Craig Swift and the banker, Barry Dangerfield.

The men's plate had brothers Wooldridge -Andrew and Brock as opponents as Andrew partnered Cam McFarlane and they were all square after 18 holes so had to take previous winners Brock with Roy Howard to the 20th hole to seal their win. …
